Data furnished from a diverse number of subdisciplines of neurobiology (e.g. neuroanatomy, neurochemistry and neuropharmacology) over the past decade provide compelling evidence that neurotensin, an endogenous tridecapeptide, interacts with dopaminergic systems in the CNS. Charles Nemeroff and Scott Cain discuss these findings and their implications for the pathophysiology and development of novel treatments for schizophrenia.
